*The Associated Press is tapping its global news coverage and vast archives to launch a series of paperback and e-books called AP Editions.
In collaboration with Miami-based Mango Media, AP is releasing the first 15 of what will be dozens of titles planned this year, drawing from recent reporting in text and photos, in addition to AP’s rich archive dating to 1846.
The initial titles, which can be located at www.ap.org/books, are developed from key moments in history, major current events, profiles and oddities. AP’s first books recount the fall of the Berlin Wall, Ebola’s impact on Africa and beyond and the magic of the cosmos made real by the Hubble Telescope.
“AP reporters and photographers have spent nearly 170 years in all quarters of the globe, telling the most important stories of their time,” said Sarah Nordgren, director of content development at AP. “By teaming up with Mango, AP has the opportunity to bring those stories once again to light, with the added perspective of history.”
